Welcome to my blog!!

My name is Paola, I am a New Yorker living in the Bronx. I am a Latina native of Dominican Republic.

I'm 22, love reading, watching movies, and Fanfiction! I love Tom Hiddleston and reblog a lot about him. This is a LIFE blog. I blog about things I like, what's on my mind at the moment, how I cope with things, and life changing experiences.

I had a Gastric Sleeve surgery to lose weight on April 23, 2014.

I want to go to this exact point and run around it saying “I’m in Sweden!” I’m in Finland!” “I’m in Norway!” until I get tired

i aspire to great things in life

According to Google Maps, that point is in the middle of a small lake.

So we’ll do it in January when it’s frozen.

actually that’s why they’ve helpfully dropped a big-ass cement block with a bridge surrounding it in the middle of the lake: for the express purpose of doing what OP aspires to do

My goal is not achieving my dream body. My goal is to be confident and happy with myself, for who I am now. What’s the point of having your a so-called “perfect” body when you still don’t love yourself?

Had my endoscopy today! Anesthesia is a trip man. Done with all of my testing, now it’s just up to insurance. Wish me luck folks!

I just got approval yesterday f or a sleeve. I have to do a sleep apnea test, an endoscopy, and all of the psych evaluations, but my insurance has been incredible about all of this. Best of luck to you on your surgery! =)

Thank you so much ❤️❤️❤️❤️ and congrats!!!!!

Good luck with everything love. 💜💜 you won’t every regret your decision.

#julyphotochallenge #day23 #somethingPink 💗 My journal and an amazing tasty quest bar @questnutrition #chocolateraspberry 💞! If I didn’t keep journals I would probably be completely insane. It’s good to go back and see how far I’ve come.

Happy 3 month anniversary to me!

Wow wow wow!

It’s been three months since I went through surgery. I couldn’t be happier with my decision. Has is been easy? Hell No! Do I regret my decision? Absolutely not!

Weight loss surgery is possibly the hardest decision I’ve ever taken but the outcome is so rewarding I don’t really mind the hard work, or the hair falling, or working out religiously, or the meal planning.

This is not the easy way out!
I repeat, this is not the easy way out!

Commitment is key, exercising is extremely important and making the right choices when eating are crucial for success. I’m a little sad because, I won’t know how much weight I’ve lost so far until next Tuesday, July 29. I promise not to weight myself and I will stand by it.

If you have tried every diet in the world and you’re still struggling to lose weight I would recommend weight loss surgery. Be completely sure of the lifestyle change because there won’t be a chance to go back once you go through with it. Life is too short and you have to love yourself more than you love food in order to succeed.

Anyways, I am happy, happy, happy and bless! Good day y’all!

August is around the corner and I am looking for ways to stay motivated. I am very competitive, so I do challenge as a way to keep my motivation and not fall back. Any challenges or anything I could try for a whole month? BTW not weighting myself this month has been the hardest thing EVER! #wls #vsgnation #vsg #itsapaothing #motivation #fitbit #fitness #gordaaflaca #sleeve #augustchallenge
